I kinda lose it in the second verse but I hope you enjoy it anyway! I love Pretty.Odd so I loved covering this! I used the instrumental version for the background. If anyone wants to request anything else I’d be happy to do it for you!
Jughead finds himself having no motivation to write and has trouble finding inspiration even when he changes up his surroundings. Until…

A/N: Funny thing is I came across this song by searching “Uninspired” on youtube, because that’s what I am now. Wooooo. That ‘woo’ was sarcasm btw. This song inspired something, but I’m tired of writing things that don’t mean anything. So here’s this. Don’t ask me if it means anything to me cause tbh idk.
On this day in music history: June 1, 1985 - “Rock Me Tonight (For Old Times Sake)” by Freddie Jackson hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 6 weeks, also peaking at #18 on the Hot 100 on August 10, 1985. Written and produced by Paul Laurence, it is the first chart topping single for the R&B vocalist from Harlem, NY. Raised singing at The White Rock Baptist Church in his native Harlem, Freddie Jackson is discovered by Laurence (brother of musician and producer Kashif) who also grew up attending the same church, having taken piano lessons as a child from fellow famed parishioner Valerie Simpson (of Ashford & Simpson). Through Paul Laurence, Freddie is introduced to singer Melba Moore and her husband/manager Charles Huggins (of Hush Productions) in 1982. Impressed with his vocal abilities, Huggins signs Jackson to his production company and has him work as a background singer for Melba. By 1984, Laurence and the Hush team begin recording Freddie Jackson’s debut album, independently of a record label. Among the songs written for the album “Rock Me Tonight (For Old Times Sake)”, which all agree is a hit before setting foot in the studio. After recording is complete, Jackson’s album is pitched to several labels including Motown and RCA Records who both turn it down. Capitol Records hears its potential, and agrees to release the album. Issued as a single in March of 1985, “Rock Me Tonight” is an instant smash on R&B radio. By late Spring it grabs hold of the top spot on the R&B singles chart, staying there well into Summer, then crossing over to the pop chart. The huge success of the single drives the accompanying album (also titled “Rock Me Tonight”), to the the top of the Billboard R&B album chart, spending eighteen weeks at number one, peaking at number ten on the Top 200, going Platinum in the US.
